President Muhammadu Buhari Monday commiserated with the Serving Overseer of the Latter Rain Assembly, Pastor Tunde Bakare, on the passage of his mother, Mrs. Abigail Eebudola Bakare.

According to Malam Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to the President, Buhari made a telephone call to his friend and erstwhile running mate and urged him and the Bakare family to take solace in the fact that the late Mrs. Bakare lived long enough to witness the enormous successes achieved by her children.

“The President called on the bereaved family to uphold the cherished ideals of community service, kindness and generosity associated with the matriarch of the Bakare family, who died on May 5, 2018, aged 108,” the statement added.
